Placement Testing

Delaware Tech uses the College Board's ACCUPLACER Computerized Placement Tests (CPTs) to provide information about your skill levels in reading, English, and mathematics. This information is used to help determine the integrated reading and writing/English, and mathematics courses that are most appropriate for you at this time. For students for whom English is a second language, there is also a component called the LOEP (Levels of English Proficiency). All tests are untimed and on the computer.

Additional information about Admission Placement Testing: After you have turned in your completed Delaware Tech application, the next step may be to take the ACCUPLACER. For specific information about testing at each campus & scheduling, see information below:
